Marcus Aurelius

Every instant of time is a pinprick of eternity. All things are petty, easily changed, vanishing away.

In a man's life, his time is but a moment, his being a mere flux, his senses a dim glimpse, his body food for the worms, and his soul a restless eddy … the things of the body pass like a flowing stream; life is a brief sojourn, and one's mark in this world is soon forgotten.
